AKI HIMANEN & ALEKSI KINNUNEN PRESENTS THE NEW ALBUM

Aki Himanen and Aleksi Kinnunen returns to Jazz-o-Tech for their new album ‘A Thing with Feathers‘ featuring seven tracks exploring the contrasts and similarities between improvised jazz and machine-made techno.

With Aki on trumpet and electronics and Aleksi on drums, the new album finds the pair again creating a synthesis of machinery and humanity and how they coexist. Each track starts as an exploration of electronics; a quest to find interesting moods and textures to build on. It was this same spirit of adventuring into the unknown that defined Miles Davis‘s ever-futuristic‚ Bitches Brew‘ – collaborative and hypnotic improvisation, not only between musicians but also with machines.
The finnish duo landed on the label with last year‘s fantastic ‘Dawn Drops‘ EP after their debut album ‘Scapes 1‘, which was inspired by generative music techniques and collective improv.

Aki and Aleksi say: “The interesting part of this musical dialogue is that it’s always unpredictable and evolving –  what’s coming out there is always a mystery for even us.”
